Photographer's Note

Geneva's summer street party begins with a pre-festival warm-up from mid-July, with the main 10-day event following in early August. The streets of the centre burst into life with floats, parades and parties, street theatre and entertainment with a programme of concerts featuring national and international performers. Operatic and folkloric shows are among the attractions while, mainly for children, there is a clown parade and a funfare. Up to 1.5 million visitors pour into the city to join in with the merriment that culminates in a spectacular fireworks display. Each year a guest-of-honour country provides its own mini exhibition.
